My mother (50 years old) has been having discontinuous chest and upper back pains for about 2 weeks now. I'm worried she might be showing symptoms of breast cancer or a pending heart attack. She's been under a lot of stress and has gone through a lot these past 5 months, is there a possible chance that these pains are a result of stress? Also, my mother's sister and mother were diagnosed and both died of breast cancer, so it's in the family. I've been begging her to go get a mammogram and a blood test. She finally agreed to it and went to the clinic for a blood test today--the results will be out in 10 days and then she'd go ahead and get a mammogram. But please, any kind of help until then would be much appreciated.
